4 Works great, especially easy for beginners. The suggestion of creating a new "VM" (actually just a new C:\ Windows filepath; which can add clutter and duplicity) should be abandonned. Overall POL is a great way to manage WINE, patches and other software.

5 Si eres usuario de Linux pero también te gusta jugar en tu ordenador, no tienes que renunciar a nada gracias a PlayOnLinux. Además, con esta interfaz para Wine no sólo podrás instalar juegos, sino también otros tipos de aplicaciones de Windows. Cuenta con un gran número de programas listados preparados para su instalación pero también te permite instalar programas no listados paso a paso. Por último, los usuarios pueden crear sus propios scripts para aquellos programas no listados y compartirlos con la comunidad para así facilitarnos el trabajo de la configuración en nuestras instalaciones.

1 If you are looking to run more than windows games, look elsewhere. The version of wine behind this is too old to run 32/64bit apps from as recent as 2013. Tested multiple ones, expecially from MS. ADDENDUM: Waste of time; wouldn't install any CD/DVD games locally (DOS or Windows). A commercial trap.

1 I've tried to install several games (both from original cd and downloaded file) and it didn't worked. When you try to install some game from list, there are issues such as: you have to point to downloaded file, which you don't know where it is becouse installer didn't say where it downloads; it asks for cd drive... etc. Sorry but this is crap

1 The address wasn't understood Firefox doesn't know how to open this address, because the protocol (apt) isn't associated with any program. You might need to install other software to open this address. I also went to the playonlinux site and could not find a place to download from. I know it must be there and thought it must be me, so imagine when I hit your INSTALL link here and get the message....

4 Great! This is more than a front-end for wine. It's a great help for installing a lot of games that would normally require tinkering with wine parameters or install additional Windows software/dependencies. If it would be simpler than it is, it would be perfect! ;)

5 As stated by others, much easier to use than wine (see my review about wine). I have a LinuxMint 15 machince (Cinnamin Desktop) and installed MS Office 2007 with only one hitch, wine just was a real pain to get to work even with wine help. I am surprised and the large number or Windows software that easily installed and ran...many that are not listed on the wine website. Another reviewer found that PlayOnLinux may request a certain library or library file to run properly...I have also but that was easy to fix. I also noted a reviewer stated that more than one version of wine can be used. That worked also! This is a versitle app that makes Windows software install less painless than wine alone.

5 Much easier than using WINE directly (if your program is listed in PlayOnLinux). LM15 Cinnamon. Worked great for PIcasa (V3.9), Sketchup, and Kindle for PC. Newer version on website installs fine, but needs Curl and some other dependencies installed (it will complain to you on startup)

2 Get Wine instead. Unless you are into games, Wine is so much straighforward compared to playonlinux. Confusing settings, and some package inside cannot properly run.

4 A very good frontend for wine- especially for new users. It makes the process of installing some of the software that can only be found on the Windows platform. For example, there is still no serious chess game software in Linux, but with this utility I was able to install 'Chessbase' applications on my beloved Mint's Cinnamon desktop.
